-- AHEAD OF ITS TIME --
In our still early 21st century, irreversible evolutions will shake and redraw the arts' landscape even more. In our globalised universe, all cultural expressions are permeated by each other. Classical music merges with jazz, pop and world music. Europe will disappear as a cultural leader. Music from the far and nearby past is very much alive. Contemporary music is how it has always been and should always be: innovative, shocking and directive.
This 'clash of cultures' provides dynamics never seen before and a whirling, ominous yet amazing future.
The chamber choir AQUARIUS, consisting of 24 musicians, embraces this age and participates in this exciting, confusing and gaudy shift, where old and new, classical en popular, sacred and secular, progressive and conservative are combined.
Founded in 1995 under the name of Goeyvaerts Consort, this ensemble has expanded, and using a new name, its vision is to embrace all forms of contemporary music in a global musical offering that rises above all categories and specialities.
